Tricky Typing… Google is well known and well liked for its thorough and quick delivery of search results. But those who are a little too eager and too sloppy with their typing to get to this search destination could be in for a surprise. For instance, typing will take you to a website (we haven’t linked to it here, for your own protection… and ours) that Finnish anti-virus firm F-Secure warns will unleash multiple pop-up windows to websites that have malicious code. See the brief in The Register.

Try this if you have no confidence in your typing skills.
